In this video, I remind us to take pride as Americans in our history, our people, and our institutions. We are by no means a perfect nation. But we enjoy a level of freedom, justice, and prosperity that is remarkable. When we debate the ways to be even better as a nation, we need to quit demonizing those who disagree with us. We need to engage in respectful, civil debate. That’s the only way to continue to progress steadily and sustainably in liberty, justice, and prosperity through the years, decades, and generations.
